Today In Black History: Happy Birthday Leontyne Price!

Mary Leontyne Price was born on Febuary 10, 1927 in Laurel, Mississippi. Price was the first African American singer to achieve an international reputation in opera.

She rose to international fame in the 1950s and 60s, and became the first black “superstar” at the once-segregated Metropolitan Opera. Today she is 93 years young. (Sources:  BlackHistoryDaily.com and Britannica.com)

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been color, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
